Apple is holding a press conference Friday and there aren't many details. However, it's highly likely that the company is going to address its iPhone 4 antenna issues.

The press conference, according to folks getting all of the invites, will apparently go down 10 a.m. PT Friday. As noted earlier, Apple has a few options to pursue. It could:

  • Hand out bumper cases to all iPhone 4 buyers so far;
  • Do a full recall (highly unlikely);
  • Or have a press conference just to tell Consumer Reports and all of its customers to just hold the phone differently (again).

My bet would be on the cheap yet effective bumper cases for all. Maybe Steve Jobs can descend from the ceiling tossing bumper cases to the crowd of live bloggers.
